THE GOOD WIFE – My rating 9/10

TheGoodWifeI don’t usually watch shows on CBS.  No particular reason, I just haven’t found interest there.  I decided to give them a good look and discovered not only is there plenty of interest, they have one of the best shows ever written, in my opinion.  The Good Wife looks at the legal world of lawyers, cops, corporations and the entire justice system from a perspective I’ve not seen.  I started watching The Good Wife On Demand.  There are 5 seasons consisting of 22 to 24 episodes each.   I am only on season 2, episode 12 and I watched those in 3 days time, that’s how much the series holds my interest.  I don’t know what’s going to happen in the coming episodes but I know I’m really looking forward to seeing them.  Alicia Florrick , played by Julianna Margulies, is an above average lawyer who after 15 years of being a housewife and mom, had to go back out into the field in order to survive her husband’s, philandering and corruption charges that landed him in jail.  Peter Florrick, played by Chris Noth, being the sole breadwinner, has incurred legal expenses and a high profile life style to be paid for by his wife.  There are many, many stars that make up this most interesting show.  I especially like the diversity shown throughout the episodes and the cases taken on by the firm Alysha works for.  I will add on to this review as I advance through the seasons to update the current situations and to see if my 9/10 rating still holds.  For now, I’m really liking The Good Wife!  Go CBS!

TRUE BLOOD – My rating: 8/10

TrueBloodEvery time I sit down to watch this HBO series, I brace myself for the introduction theme which I think is totally evil.  I tell myself once I get past the start up, things will get better.  I really enjoy True Blood even though I don’t like the lead in.  I think I like the series because of some of the hot characters and because it’s written so you’ll have some compassion for their situation due to no fault of their own.

Vampires, werewolves, fairies, change shifters, Satan, corruption, evil, good, bad, sex, nudity, murderers, you name it, True Blood has it.  They seem to introduce new species every season.  If it were not make believe, I would be very upset over the foul characters and their stories every week.  What a crazy show of freaks.  Still, despite the dark side, it’s quite entertaining.  I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone under 21 or anyone who is trying to live a clean lifestyle.  The consistent bloody mouths of this freak show’s characters are bound to upset the faint of heart and delight the strong willed.  I won’t say I recommend this show but I will say, if you can get past all that corruption, go for it.
